While we were brainstorming of methods to create sound from the previous weeks’ concepts, we had pendulums and wind chimes as an instrument.
However, we decided to look deeper into pendulums and wind chimes because we wanted the user to have the experience of touching and seeing of the entire installation.
So we laid out our ideas as such below:

A little recap for last week:
We started on mock up after we had some idea on how we want the whole installation to look like, we used some plasticine and wire to make our mock up.
We did realize that the mock up do not look close to what we’ve imagined.
Key issues for this mock-up: – Lack of Read more →
To follow up from last week’s progress, we asked ourselves these questions to further our explorations in the new frontier of proxemics.
What materials are we considering ? How can it be fabricated? Does it require electricity? And if so, how can we generate it sustainably? Foam mockups of the installation? Which locations are we considering? Does it accomodate the scale? Geometric or organic?
We also wanted Read more →
feedback from previous weeks:the circular screen installation proposed does not fit into the site proposed how do you expect people to use the installation? make a specific proposal of the installation
when developing forms and functions for the installation, we were stuck on the idea of having the passerby notice the shadows (forcing it on them). benefit of doubt that the users Read more →
After consultation and discussion, we decided to focus on refining our boat design. We wanted to make the design more unique and site-specific to the lake, instead of one that is commonly seen elsewhere.Concept Sketch Inspiration & Concept The main objective of this project wasn't to put a recreational boat on the lake, but rather, to rediscover the Nantah spirit Read more →
After the feedback, we decided not to elevate the sculpture/seating as it is not feasible. Also, after getting comments on how the previous sculpture looked more rigid and that each module looked exactly the same, we tried to make each seat more organic and they were specifically made individually. Hence, every seat is of different sizes and form.
Further development on Form and Function of Installation
New developments such as the addition of a curved seating, curved shelves, curved ladder and safety railings have been updated in the most recent rendering of our installation. We have also refined on the proportions of the sculptural installation in the renderings for a more accurate depiction of the real thing.
Users are able to sit Read more →
As seen above, this is our scale model of the design for the nest, that we have arrived at up till the ideation for week 8. However, there are still improvements to be made. The curved support structure sprouting from the centre feels too engineered, and detracts from the form of a natural bird’s nest. Furthermore, the halo Read more →
Form exploration II Fiona x Shanelle
This week we are exploring forms that:Allows the sculpture to swirls around the tree w/o interfering the growth of the tree. How can we improve on the form such that it can be distinguish that it’s inspired by a pangolin. How can we improve on the form such that the end form an Read more →
” SMELL. “
Heng Tong x Hong Sheng
After the previous session with Ker Siang, we have set our minds on the direction we are heading towards, which was to collect smell through interaction instead of collecting a specific smell and then amplifying it through our installation.
We finally moved on to ideating and doing some sketches Read more →
